Favorite Running Book (Read 171 times)

    Running With The Buffaloes without a doubt.  It's a must-read in my opinion.  Everything else is second tier.  I did recently read How Bad Do You Want It by Matt Fitzgerald.  I read in the night before a half marathon and thought about it during the last couple miles when the going got tough.

          Nowhere Near First by Cory Reese...got me into trail running and now into ultras.


          Good Grief!

            Another great book, especially for trail runners, is Run Gently Out There by John Morlock who posted here as John M before passing away last February.

              I just finished "Today We Die a Little! The Inimitable Emil Zatopek" by Richard Askwith, which I really enjoyed. Also liked "What I Talk About when I Talk About Running" by Haruki Murakami and "An Honorable Run" by Matt McCue.

               

              "Heroes and Sparrows" by Roger Robinson, "Best Efforts" by Kenny Moore and "Running with the Legends" by Mike Sandrock are also good. --CH (who is very tempted to keep typing in more book names)
